New Indoor Works from Banksy

Innovative street artist Banksy has recently revealed a series of new works he has completed, both outdoors and indoors. While most are used to witnessing his brand of controversial satire and whimsies displayed in public spaces, his indoor works are equally entertaining and thought-provoking. My favorite of the bunch has got to be the ballerina on pointe, balancing on what appears to be a tightrope. The brilliant part is that the stencil is printed on the back of a framed painting and the rope is what's normally used to hang said painting. Instead of questioning whether a work of art deserves to be framed, why not turn the frame itself into a work of art? I feel like the lesson to take away from this is that art is everywhere. It just takes a creative force like Banksy to open our eyes to it.
